In my many years of facilitating entrepreneurs and solopreneurs the idea of slowing down and taking a break seem foreign to most of my client. They believe that they have to keep forcing life to happen to be successful.
Unfortunately, nothing can be further from the truth. I am here to tell you that there is much easier way to enjoy life. There are several simple ways to break this pattern and I am going to reveal some of the best to you. Here are eight simple health and fitness tips that you may be ignoring because you are too busy.
Get the proper amount of rest. While you are sleeping your body is making repairs and balancing all parts of your body.
Your brain and heart is resting and preparing for the next day. Your brain is the part of the body that is the most closely related to stress.
Without the proper amount of rest, it does not handle stress and anxiety the way it was designed to.
#2: OK, how much rest do we really need for stress relief?
What is the proper amount of rest? Each of us has an internal clock that lets us know when we are getting the right amount of rest.
Some may be comfortable getting five or six hours of rest each night, others may not feel up to par if they don’t get eight to ten hours.
Your body knows how much rest it needs, listen to your internal clock. This leads to the question of exercise.
#3: Is exercise good for stress and anxiety?
Many of us do not like to hear about this stress reliever. It is exercise. Yes, physical activity will help relieve feelings of stress and anxiety!
#4: What if you don’t like to exercise?
There are many ways of getting the physical activity that your body needs. Pick an activity that you enjoy and take part in that activity five days a week.
#5: Dancing is enjoyable to many people, and it is great exercise.
#6: Take your pet for a walk, enjoy the nature in your local park.
#7: Get on that bike that has been stored in your garage!
#8: Do I need to check with my doctor to see if I am physically fit?
If you are starting an exercise program for the first time, check with your doctor to be sure you can physically take part in your choice of exercise.
Remember, even a small amount of physical activity is better than none at all.
Start slow and add speed and more activities are you are comfortable with them.
Simply follow the steps above and you will be able to incorporate health and fitness into your daily life. Now, I challenge you to do something about your problem by maybe seeing your doctor and get busy with the strategies I outlined above.
We eagerly look forward hearing your stories of success and hope you feel better about being able to handle any stressors that appear in your life. Peace.
